Ashanti & Beyonce - Silent Night
Okay, so perhaps it sounds like Ashanti and Beyonce are trying to outdo each other on this rendition of "Silent Night," but you have to admit that it sounds a whole lot better than what we’re used to hearing. A little R&B thrown into Christmas music never hurt anybody.

U2 - It’s Christmas
U2 is classic and no matter what they’re singing, we all want to hear it. So when U2 released this Christmas single, we were all happy to discover that we weren’t relegated to listening to all of that old school music that the malls are constantly bombarding us with. “It’s Christmas” is a Christmas mainstay but U2 manages to give it a great upgrade.
